Developing a Growth Mindset
The sudden increase in home and remote working is creating a lot of change for people and this workshop increases openness to change, and willingness to learn from adversity, while minimising distress and burnout.
There is a growing body of research showing that home working does not suit everyone.
According to the research and writings of Dr Carol S. Dweck, a Growth Mindset is based on the belief that you can develop your abilities and achieve high performance through practice, feedback from others, and learning from your mistakes. Individuals who believe their talents can be developed through their efforts, tend to achieve more than those with a fixed mindset (who give up easily, are defensive and fearful of failure).
Organisations of all shapes and sizes are becoming increasingly aware of the potential to improve leadership performance and nurture leadership potential, just by focusing on the development of a Growth Mindset. Educators in particular have seen the importance of a Growth Mindset in schools and are set to produce a new generation of young people with high expectations of their employers as they join the workplace over the coming years. Forward-thinking businesses are also seeing the potential benefits of this simple but powerful approach.
This is the foundation workshop in the series and a prerequisite for the others which can be selected as required.
